Subject areas

Readings and listenings by subject areas. The Listening Phase. Interactive Phase - Sample prompts Int/Adv. As part of the GESE examinations at Intermediate stage (Grades 7-9) and Advanced stage (Grades 10-12), candidates complete ‘the Interactive phase’.

Interactive Phase - Sample prompts Int/Adv

Examiners initiate the phase by reading out a prompt. It is then the candidate’s responsibility to ask questions and make comments in order to develop and maintain a conversation based on the initial prompt. The Topic Form - Levels 4-6. As part of the GESE examinations at Grades 4-6, candidates present and talk about a topic of their choice which they have had time to prepare before the examination takes place.

The Topic Form - Levels 4-6

Before their examination, Elementary candidates (Grades 4-6) must complete a ‘Topic form’ which they present to the examiner when they enter the examination room. The examiner uses the information on the Topic form to help initiate and develop a discussion about the candidate’s chosen topic area. It is designed to encourage spontaneous discussion which does not rely on memorised recitation. N.B NO Topic Form is required for Grades 7-12Important information – New Topic forms The GESE Topic forms have been redesigned as mind maps. You can find examples of completed topic forms in the GESE Exam Information booklet. Grades preparation. GESE Syllabus. GREAT!!! GESE Lesson plans. Authentic communicative skills for real life GESE exams are for people of all ages who want to develop communicative English language speaking and listening skills for use in real life - whatever the purpose, whether for immigration, work, study, leisure or employment.

GREAT!!! GESE Lesson plans

Genuine discussion format GESE exams are one-to-one, face-to-face assessments of English language speaking and listening skills with a Trinity examiner, who encourages the candidate to show what they can do through prompts and authentic interative dialogue. The exam length is 5-25 minutes depending on the grade. Focus on building confidence Because candidates can plan ahead to discuss their own interests and opinions in the exam, this motivates learning and aids natural speech - which helps them to relax and perform at their best during the exam.
